Next Stop on the Ruby Hood Blog Tour!

Ruby Hood Blog Tour

Welcome to the Ruby Hood Blog tour, featuring the wonderful book The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood (Ruby Hood Series) by: Stephanie Greenhalgh! It's a wonderful, twisted fairytale based on the classic story Little Red Riding Hood, but Greenhalgh's book is anything but cliche! Also, be sure to scroll down to enter to win a $25 Amazon gift card, an autographed paperback or e-book copies! Take a look ...

Synopsis: In the small town of Woodsville, self-assured Ruby Hood becomes tangled in more than traditional teenage angst. With the Homecoming Dance looming, everything at Woodsville High appears normal, but things are not as they seem. Ruby meets a cute boy with a lopsided grin, Dylan Hunter. She flirts shamelessly with the football star, Kent Wolf, and finds herself in a barrage of harsh verbal altercations with his stunning yet wicked sister, Kayla Wolf. Thankfully, she finds solace in her friend, Lilly Fair. Through a series of odd and painful events, Ruby discovers her true calling and the responsibilities that come with her new power and position. Despite her heartache and sorrow, will Ruby find the inner strength not only to protect herself, but also to keep the Wood safe at all cost?



My Review: As I said above, The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood, by: Stephanie Greenhalgh, is anything but cliche! She does go "over the river and through the woods" to her grandmother's house, but that just adds to the quaint ambiance of the book, reminiscent of childhood. The book begins with Ruby, who is in high school with her friends, and a visit to her grandmother's house, then everything suddenly goes supernatural from there. Ruby soon discovers that she is living in a world completely different than she thought. Ruby soon has to deal with loss and love, and coming of age in a supernatural world, and having to make her own way and her own decisions when danger is mounting. Soon, Ruby's life is interwoven within a supernatural world, fraught with danger and surprises at every turn, hunters, werewolves, witches ... and even a fairy godmother. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found myself reading faster to find out what happens next. The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood is great not only for young adults, but for people of any age who misses the adventures of youth. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next installment in this wonderful series ... and more to come from this fabulous author ... Stephanie Greenaulgh! I give it five stars.

About the Author: A born and raised Midwestern girl, Stephanie Greenhalgh, grew up in Godfrey, Illinois. She is a two-time graduate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a Master’s in Education. As an avid reader, literature has always been more of a passion than a hobby for Stephanie. A few years ago, she had a story swirling around in her subconscious, so she started jotting down ideas and The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood was born. At present, she has four published short stories all featured in anthologies: Betula’s Angst, Duality, Angel 101 and The Twistedly True Nightmare of Ruby (a prequel to her first novel). Stephanie currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, with her husband and two Labrador retrievers. When she’s not writing or teaching, she enjoys spending quality time with friends and family, reading, running, practicing yoga and taking long walks with her pups. According to Stephanie, the best cure for writer’s block is curling up on the couch with a good book.
